I call out lousy Priority Pass lounges when I encounter them (see Priority Pass Jakarta Lounge Review: Yuck). The karma of being so harsh came back to bite me when I attempted to access the Preludium Executive Lounge, a Priority Pass lounge, in Warsaw. I presented my pass only to find that it had expired. I called Amex who told me that my Priority Pass membership was linked to my Mercedes Platinum, a card that I had canceled the day before my trip started. I activated it on my Charles Schwab Platinum but was told that I could not get a membership number immediately. I had this conversation in front of the lounge attendant in the hopes that she would still let me in. She did not. This experience should 1) serve as a reminder to everyone who churns to make sure your Priority Pass is linked to your current card. 2) Serve as a reminder that a lounge is better than no lounge.
